It's KWGT. It's not a launcher per se, but an app that lets you customize widgets and put them in your launcher. It's commonly used with Nova Launcher:
There's another alternative called Zooper Widgets, with similar results.

Firefox is my go-to browser, laptop and Moto G. On android I don't use an adblocker yet. For my laptop I use ublock, which used less CPU resources than other blockers, and reduces the used RAM, instead of increases it, compared to non-blocked.
You can try to find it for Android.
All your contacts are backed up to Google (https://contacts.google.com) so you don't need to worry about backing those up. You don't need to remove the SIM to do a factory reset, either.
If you haven't already, clear cache partition before you resort to a factory reset. Google for instructions on how to do that, its easy. If you don't see improvement, then go ahead and do a factory reset. Everything is backed up to Google and when it's done you'll be given an option to reload all your apps and whatnot. You might consider not reloading all your apps in case one of them is the root cause of the problem. Just go with the stock apps at first and see if it's working better. If so, you can start adding apps back in.

Nokia has kept us their promise for the last 1+ years. The Nokia 6 2017 is currently on Android 8.1 March security patch in most markets.
Additionally some of the new Nokia's are certified "Android Enterprise Recommended", where Google enforces a set of rules including THREE years of security updates with each update given up to 3 months to be released.

I have a G5 Plus, & use Open Camera, which you can download from the Google Play Store, here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.sourceforge.opencamera
I used to use Google Camera, on my previous phones, but when I was unable to get it on this one, I gave Open Camera a go. I've been pretty happy with it, so perhaps you should give it a go. It's way better than the stock camera app, & it's free & has no ads.
Yes, this is true for the G6. The G6 comes with vanilla Android, so it's a clean slate to work with. However, it does come with a few Moto apps that are actually extremely useful (shake for camera, chop for flashlight). If you're technologically inclined, you can also root it and/or install a custom rom or Xposed to basically be able to customize every aspect of the phone. Those are some advanced things to do, so you might want to hold off on them for a while, but the option is there. I am not sure what themes you're referring to exactly. Maybe Substratum? Usually need root for that app though. I've had every Moto G besides the 2nd gen. Currently have a G5+ and am gonna wait until the G6+ (hopefully) comes to the US. They are great phones. My mom, dad, brother, fiancée, best friend all have Moto Gs and none of them have ever had a serious problem with them.

Moto G Play (4th gen.) - Black - 16 GB - Unlocked - ~~149$~~ 129$ at Amazon without ads or any of that nonsense, this is the one I bought for my dad and sister last year, it's still a great deal I think :)
Edit: It is now 129$!
With the Nova Launcher:
Best bet is to use one of several apps on the play store that can show you the space hogs. Search "storage space" on the Play Store, I have used THIS on occasion, not enough to rave or complain about it though.
my understanding is that basic versions are:

An alternative to getting Facebook solutions is using a combination of Pushbullet and IFFTT. You won't be able to get up-to-the-minute updates, but instead you will receive notifications on your phone every 15 minutes or so if a notification occurs. I found it sufficient for my needs.
Check out the IFTTT recipe to set it up for Tinfoil for Facebook :)
200 MB of free RAM is not a good number. I'm using actively 3 apps at the same time, while having several in background and I still have more than 250 available.
But the amount of RAM consumed is normal for that amount of services running… I don't believe that changing the kernel would improve it.
I personally recommend not to install 'memory managers', 'memory killers', 'system optimizators' or that kind of crap, but I do recommend you to look for an app called Greenify, that's the only one that really worked for me :)
I rooted my Moto G a couple of days after the first rooting method was revealed. There are just too much features I miss without rooting. Most of them are connected to the Xposed Framework. Rearranging and Adding quick tiles, Customising the status bar and some other phone behaviour, Titanium Backup, Per App Settings and especially Xprivacy for rights management (App Ops isn't enough for me) were the things I needed rooting for. I didn't change the ROM though, I'm waiting for one of the big players Omni, CM, Paranoid or AOKP to release one for the Moto G.
I use CarbonROM, no issues so far.
I switched from stock because the aggressive killing of background apps was becoming a real annoyance - I could have a podcast playing and it would just stop. I didn't find a fix for it so I switched to Carbon to see if the problem would go away, and it did, so I'm satisfied.
Yes it's possible. Keep in the mind, you will lose your warranty when you unlock your Moto G5+'s bootloader.
If you're okay with that, then go ahead. (there's plenty of instructions online) When you unlocked your bootloader, flash a custom recovery on fastboot. From custom recovery, flash the latest LineageOS build for Moto G5+.
Custom ROMs almost never come with google integration, so if you wanted it: you'd flash gapps package. Of course, you don't want that don't you? Which means you're looking for the MicroG project. Download apks from them then you should be set.
Obviously, this is rough idea of what you are going to do.
The version you bought is ad supported, its kind of bloaty and the ads are annoying (theres guides on xda to remove this but if you fuck it up and are not used to it you can get stuck it bootloops or brick the phone) if your finances allows you should consider getting the standard 32gb version its $189 on amazon, also the device takes a very long time (all night) to charge with a normal charger, the turbo charger is 11 bucks and totally worth it, no more overnight charging, just an hour or two a day will do. There is also a more expensive "Plus" version of the phone that includes the turbo charger, has a fingerprint scanner and a better camera.
In settings/security make your device manager is activated, its the equivalent of find my iphone. You can also consider a more robust antitheft app like cerberus.
Airdroid is a great app to manage and transfer big files through wifi ala airplay, it used to be indispensable for pics but the google photos app works pretty seemless now, the same for google drive for files and keep for notes.
I bought the TUDIA lightweight case ($10.99 USD on Amazon), and it covers the bump perfectly to create a nice, flat back surface. And since it's lightweight, it hardly feels like there's a case at all. In fact, apart from the increased phone size, it feels a lot like my Moto G 1st Gen.
Note that this is the first case I've ever owned. I never really cared to use one in the past, but I bought this specifically to alleviate my concerns about the camera bump, and I can say that I'm 100% satisfied. (An added bonus is that it makes the phone totally black, since I don't particularly like the "lunar gray" or "fine gold" colors that the phone comes in.)
The Moto Camera app was recently updated. From the "What's New" section:
"Added support for full resolution (4:3) image capture as default. If you prefer 16:9 (full screen), please change this by swiping from left to right on the screen for camera settings and changing the "Photo size" to 16:9."
This is built into the Google Dialer app (which you can find here). The dialer on the G5 is the standard AOSP dialer app (which doesn't come with this feature).
Hope this solves your problem!
There's an LED, but you won't get anything useful out of it, so don't bother.
If you want unread count badges over app icons, you'll need a different launcher (the application that manages the look of your desktop). Nova Launcher in the paid version is one of the launchers that support badges.

> and other than the little 'X' to close out tabs taking a moment to pop up after I open the windows
You shouldn't need to close recent apps on a regular basis. Unless some application is misbehaving an you need to restart it, the OS will manage background tasks for you. Oh, and you can swipe them to the side without waiting for the X to pop up.
If you want, try out the Swipe for Facebook app. Very active developer. Battery life is amazing with it, and its very liteweight.
You might like it, you might not. See if it works better for you.
I started using Mr. Number a couple of months ago. It seems to work well for me, I can even block phishing text messages with it.
I went from G4+ to Moto Z Play (2016 edition), way better phone. I still haven't found a 2019 phone I want to upgrade to from the Z Play because they all have a deficit of one or more of these
in the case of https://www.gsmarena.com/compare.php3?idPhone1=8310&idPhone2=9000#*,usa,*
the G6 doesn't cut it for me because the battery rating is 64% of the original Z Play with no mods. 3000 mAh battery and a less efficient screen and/or CPU.
I'm still looking for a Moto G that's better than or equal to the Moto Z Play from 2016 in every way.
The G6 Play was not an option because of the 720 screen resolution and USB 2 instead of USB C.
The regular G6 hit all the right notes in those areas but needs a higher capacity battery.
If this comparison is to be believed it will finally happen with the g7. https://www.gsmarena.com/compare.php3?idPhone1=9357&idPhone2=8310

Think for some the biggest issue is "change" and not the fact features were removed. Essentially can still perform same functions but in some instances, it is done differently. For me personally I take it for what it is adjusting accordingly as the simple truth of the matter is, you'll get what you get being very veRY VERY unlikely Motorola will offer up another update to appease those who are unhappy with the A11 update.

"Best" is subjective. It really depends on your ROM preferences.
My go-to ROM is LineageOS (aka CM) because it has a large community and seems to be the most "professional" ROM. Other ones I've tried like AICP have actual profanity in the settings menu - which is unacceptable for me. I'm currently on the June 7 build of 15.1, and there are no issues to address - the ROM is totally stable, which is a powerful statement considering how picky I am about stability.
Lineage has a small but powerful set of features; some of my favorites are Styles and Privacy Guard. I would go into it, but you might be better off doing your own research (or you can reply and have me do it anyway :P). The link to their official website is here and the builds for the Moto G5 Plus can be found here.
Happy flashing! Feel free to contact me with any more questions.
Nothing to really worry about, you've already got the best shield if you know better than to follow those popups (or god forbid ever install what they're pushing).
You could put an extra bubble around yourself by blocking ads, though, since ad networks are pretty much a standing security risk for bad programs sneaking into good websites. If you're rooted you can install Adaway, if you're not, you can use Firefox and install uBlock (mobile chrome doesn't support extensions).
You could always use Launcher3. It's the AOSP version of the Google Now Launcher, so essentially GNL without the Google Now page on the left. https://f-droid.org/repository/browse/?fdid=com.android.launcher3

Well, you're right. They never make that kind of information public. In the past, for example, the kitkat firmware that contained the programmer got leaked from cell providers, such as verizon. They had factory images with the programmer for their service centres, I presume.
I've been checking this thread for the past few months, along with this folder on filefactory. Basically I'm keeping an eye on what images get leaked.
From what I understood on XDA, the naming of the factory image should include "release keys" and should be in tar.gz format

Pre-orders for the Moto G5 Plus are now available on Amazon, with both the Standard Version and the Prime Exclusive - with Ads & Offers version available, to be released on March 31st.
The 32GB Standard Version G5 Plus is available for $230, or for $185 with Amazon Ads & Offers.
The 64GB Standard Version G5 Plus is available for $300, or for $240 with Amazon Ads & Offers.

I have really been wanting to get a Moto G5 Plus since hearing of the phone and reading about it several weeks ago, so I am really tempted to pre-order one now. I am thinking about getting the 64GB Prime Exclusive Version for $240 (that's actually $260 with tax, for me, here in Az), as saving that $60 is really inviting to me. However, I can't help but wonder how much the Ads & Offers might affect the user experience. Has anyone on here owned one of these Prime Exclusive with Ads & Offers phones? If so, did the Ads & Offers bother you much/at all? Did they noticeably affect anything while using the phone? And does having these Ads & Offers possibly affect the battery life? Or, as I suspect, are the ads not really bothersome and it's probably worth it to save the $60 to get the version with Ads & Offers?
I haven't really taken the time to research any others phones besides the Moto G and X series, and the Nexus 5X and 6P devices, so I can't help but be curious, for someone who is only going to be using the phone in the United States, are there any other phones that are available for around the $200-$250 price range that are as good as/possibly better than this Moto G5 Plus?
I came from a Galaxy Note 4 and this feels like an upgrade. I have the Amazon Prime G5 Plus 64gb edition and it was worth the cost. Best phone I've ever had. Battery life is INSANE. Averaging 8 hours screen on time heavy use with reddit Facebook YouTube Netflix snapchat no battery saving features either. The one touch navigation is pretty useful and it works. The Amazon ads aren't intrusive at all, especially with the finger print scanner getting past the lock screen super fast. Go for it.
Hey, I had the same power switch boot loop problem. I ordered this part off Amazon, and had some local people (uBreakiFix) install it. Manual labor ran me like somewhere between $50-75 (can't remember).
Plenty of choices on Amazon already.
I prefer this style personally. I like the soft silicone protection for the corners and the rigid plastic with the knurling for the back, and it has a good lip around the front to keep the screen from touching whatever surface you place the phone on. Also, it's tactile enough to not be slippery in your hand, but it has enough glide to easy move in and out of a pocket.

What is the "software" reported as if you look at a photo in an Exif viewer (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.xnano.android.photoexifeditor)?
I use an app called Sound Profile, a side effect I've noticed on my device is that the "hello moto" startup sound no longer plays. Maybe worth giving this a download? I'm on android pie fyi.
If guys download an app from the Play Store called "SnoopSnitch" you can verify what has been patched. Bear in mind all the tests apart from verifying security patches, require root.
I've also been experiencing bad battery life on my Moto G4 in the last month. Looking at the battery stats in the phone's settings it seemed as if my phone spent most of its time awake ( I don't know if it started after the nougat upgrade ). I downloaded Wakelock Detector ( https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.uzumapps.wakelockdetector.noroot&hl=en_GB ) and managed to get it working via the instructions provided. After a day or so of profiling it provided a list of the apps that it thought were causing the phone to stay awake. Turns out that the #1 culprit was GMail which woke my phone up over 1000 times per day! I deleted all accounts from the phone settings, leaving Gmail installed and downloaded a different email app and so far battery has been significantly better. Other apps that I've removed which also keep my phone awake include Evernote & APKPure. The last biggy seems to be the Google app. I guess it keeps switching the phone on so that It can track where you are and provide suggestions.
Battery drain seems to be higher on Nougat when I'm using the phone but at least now the battery is draining slower when I'm not.
It's unfortunately a known issue. Moto G4 uses two LCD panels made by two different manufacturers: BOE and LGD. LGD's screens are the ones that often have this issue. There are two options to solve this problem: the permanent one is to return the phone and request a screen change, the simple one is to install a blue light filter app like this and set it to 6-8% (it's almost imperceptible but enough to eliminate the burn in). Hope it helps!
I have only tried DailyRoads Voyager and AutoGuard Dash Cam. AutoGuard requires the Pro version to run in the background, so I haven't used it as much. DailyRoads has worked well so far.
Install that, use it to find the launcher apk (will be called 'launcher' or 'launcher3' or something similar), extract it with the app (will be saved to /sdcard/ExtractedApks/) and choose to share/upload it to google drive or one drive or dropbox or w/e and paste the sharable link here

I was an avid Shuttle+ user, but I was browsing the Saturday APPreciation thread on r/Android and someone recommended BlackPlayer Music Player. I tried it out and I love it. It has a very minimalistic design, uses about 54MB of RAM, and has a good amount of features, even in the free version. The EX version comes with more features and is only a dollar. I don't buy many apps, but this was hard to pass up for a dollar.

For me, the camera feature is basically binary. It works or it doesn't. Gradients of camera quality are lost on me.

I don't normally like free to play mobile games, but I'm enjoying this. Plays just like a simplified version of Skyrim.
Full spec list there, but the Play has a 720p display, single camera on the back, Micro USB instead of USB-C, rear mounted fingerprint reader, which is honestly a plus in my mind, I'm not as much of a fan of the larger chin as I thought I would be, 4000MaH battery as opposed to 3000, less powerful speaker, and uses a Snapdragon 430 or 427 depending on if you opt for the 2GB or 3GB of RAM. Basically a lower clocked version of the 450 in the full G6, so you get the same set of 8 A53 cores, but they're clocked to 1.4GHz as opposed to 1.8 on the 450.
Hey. Can you check that it ths the Google dialer framework. Download from here and check if it works. Thanks.
I know it has a modded version of google phone which we will never get updates and google phone got a new ui and dark mode.
If you care about system updates get the G6, for it will probably be updated to Android 9, while given Motorola's recent record, the G5S+ might only be upgraded from 7 to 8. Android 9 for the G5S+ only if Motorola is feeling benevolent. Mind you it is still suck on Android 7, while with the G6 you'll get it out of the box with Android 8. Dimensions are really similar. The G6 is a tiny bit narrower, but overall they are the same, even the screen area is basically equal, just a different shape (compare it here in sqcm).
Edit: The G6 also has USB Type C.
Well, which XT1045 do you have?
I ordered mine direct from Motorola, and I have the "CID9" version.

As far as I know, there've been no retailer leaks for the G6 Plus, so the pricing on it is more speculative than for the G6 or G6 Play. The Fry's leak pegs the Moto G6 pricing at $250, with availability in mid-May (May 10th or 11th).

I tried to download these Moto Actions with Raccoon and my Google account from the Play Store onto my desktop but didn't work since it requires a couple of changes to Raccoon. What you could do, though, is the following: Install Amaze from F-Droid and from within its App Manager you just backup the Moto Actions apk and restore it on your GApps-free rom. As long as there are no significant updates to this app it should do the trick.
It sounds like you're seeing stock recovery. I'm assuming you've already unlocked your bootloader. Installing your recovery should be done via "fastboot flash recovery <name of recovery file>" as described here: https://twrp.me/devices/motorolamotog2013.html. After TWRP is installed, you can easily install a custom ROM and flash SuperSU.
Are you sure about that? My brother and I both have unlocked bootloaders, me Moto 5G+ and he a Nexus 5, and no issues. He's on Lineage but unrooted, I'm still on stock. Sometimes the issues come from root and can be fixed by tinkering with magisk: https://forum.xda-developers.com/apps/magisk/discussion-pokemon-magisk-discussion-t3465722
You can use Nanomod patcher to spoof the signature for Microg. It's a zip that you flash after each update. It takes something like 5 minutes on my falcon to patch the ROM in TWRP. Please note that you have to first boot the updated ROM once, then you can apply Nanomod. Not exactly confortable but at least you don't have to use a PC to achieve signature spoofing. Here it goes the relevant XDA thread:
Depending on your root type. Pokemon Go don't like seeing root. I believe that Magisk will let you have root while being hidden from apps like Pokemon Go and Android Pay.

Here is the full firmware for the xt1034 retail usa 5.1: http://www.filefactory.com/file/28gvfa1pdzf5/XT1034_FALCON_RETUAWS_5.1_LPB23.13-58_cid9_CFC.xml.zip
A guide: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2542219. download mfastboot.exe from the link and copy it to your adb folder where you copied the firmware.
use these commands, the ones on the link above are for older firmwares: Make sure adb gives you an "OK" and not "Failed" when flashing each command
mfastboot flash partition gpt.bin
mfastboot flash motoboot motoboot.img
mfastboot flash logo logo.bin
mfastboot flash boot boot.img
mfastboot flash recovery recovery.img
mfastboot flash system system.img_sparsechunk.0
mfastboot flash system system.img_sparsechunk.1
mfastboot flash system system.img_sparsechunk.2
mfastboot flash system system.img_sparsechunk.3
mfastboot flash modem NON-HLOS.bin
mfastboot erase modemst1
mfastboot erase modemst2
mfastboot flash fsg fsg.mbn
mfastboot erase cache
mfastboot erase userdata
What do you mean does not flash? Anyway, just download this firmware it's retail Canada for the XT1040:
I Guess you already have adb, moto drivers and mfastboot since you already flashed custom roms.
copy mfastboot.exe to the extracted firmware folder. Open cmd and navigate to this folder. And then execute these commands by order while in bootloader:
> mfastboot flash partition gpt.bin
> mfastboot flash motoboot motoboot.img
> mfastboot flash logo logo.bin
> mfastboot flash boot boot.img
> mfastboot flash recovery recovery.img
> mfastboot flash system system.img_sparsechunk0
> mfastboot flash system system.img_sparsechunk1
> mfastboot flash system system.img_sparsechunk2
> mfastboot flash system system.img_sparsechunk3
> mfastboot flash modem NON-HLOS.bin
> mfastboot erase modemst1
> mfastboot erase modemst2
> mfastboot flash fsg fsg.mbn
> mfastboot erase cache
> mfastboot erase userdata
> mfastboot reboot
I'm not sure which one is for you. Try both. First try the second link.
Anyone who wants it, here's my capture of the UK retail OTA (from /cache): Blur_Version.21.31.1.peregrine_retgb.retgball.en.GB.zip
Go to this link, install the app, see if it automatically detects the port, if not, navigate to the search, tap on "Motorola", look for ports which have "Android 10" which will have "gcam version7.3" If all this fails, it's quite hard to find a proper port, since the phone is new, update this thread when you're through this
My Moto is not rooted, either.
I assume you notice the problem when on either WiFi or Cellular.
Try this "greenify" app:
Use it to temporarily unload everything you can, thus freeing up memory. (Some apps are not readily apparent in Greenify, so hit the "+" to see some of them).
Also, I use Appmanager III
to "freeze" some apps so they are not activated unless I explicitly click on their icons
Here is my list of disabled apps (Apps & Notifications > See all Apps) > ... click on each, to select, then click on "Disable" & "Force Stop":
(All these can be "re-enabled" if necessary, so there is no permanent danger)
Let me know if that does / does not help
> Why are 3rd party gallery apps making my pics and videos unnaturally orange and dark?
> Use Google Camera or Open Camera instead of the Moto Camera. With Open Camera, use Camera2 api and disable all the processing settings. You'll notice your pictures take up more space but capture significantly more detail by avoid all the processing the Moto Camera and the default camera API uses by default.
Try to distinguish between your camera taking poor photos, and your gallery app displaying the photos in an unacceptable fashion.
Did things look better before you "upgraded" from Android 10 to Android 11?
I use the stock camera app, but have updated official "Moto Camera Tuner 1", to fine tune the parameters
There is also an official Moto Camera Tuner 2, but I have not tried it yet.
I've always used opencamera, but you do have to fiddle with it (use the API v2 in the settings) and there is no clear way to select each lens separately, the lenses get selected automatically based on your zoom level.
But it takes wonderful panorama shots.
My Pixel isn't wireless compatible either exactly. I have a 4a which has no wireless capability. I added this and made it compatible:
I also bought one off of eBay and another couple of models from Amazon. All of them work about the same with the exception of the cheap Chinese one I mentioned in the other post that I got from Ali whatsits.
Unfortunately I doubt it would help with your current phone as it sounds like the connector is worn or broken. But if you get a new phone that doesn't do wireless charging it would take the stress off by connecting the receiver and leaving it there.
Not sure if this will help with what you are experiencing but it's worth a try. I use an app called Fast Task Killer sometimes. It kills all processes instantly to free up memory. I use it on my Moto G Power and my chromecast with google tv.
I got this case (below). I love poetic. Had it on my last phone as well. No scratches, no breaks thus far. I have dropped my phone on the ground, flung across my bed, drop it nightly, dropped in on my chair, and more. I've enjoyed this case. Some say it has a slight fit issue, but I had no problems.
Edit: I've had this phone since August btw.

You're welcome! My son actually found a case that will fit it. I feel like a dork. This is the one: phone case
Not sure if this one fits the bill but I purchased off Amazon (Canada). They do state materials are “Made of high quality hard and durable plastic + silicone material”, true or false dunno...
I got this one, works pretty nice and the logo on the back isn't that ugly in person. Looks a lot better than the other Amazon one linked above IMO, which popped up a lot during my searches from all sorts of different sellers. Took forever to find one I liked enough based on looks, this one was close enough. $10, I can't complain. Oh yeah, the camera is recessed pretty nicely with it. The flaps for the ports seem pretty durable.
P.S. I know it has paid reviews now, but I don't think those were there when I ordered it. I've had Incipio DualPros and OtterBox Commuters before, this is pretty close in my eyes.
I did a good bit of research a while back and the Samsung Evo+ seems to be the consensus candidate. That's what I have in my G4.
There's some concern about getting fake cards no matter which brand you go with. So stick to Amazon or some other seller with buyer protection. And make sure the card you get isn't at all sketchy before using it: proper packaging, proper printing on the card, &c.
This is the one I bought on Amazon, mostly for the cheap piece of shit USB thing which, despite being a cheap piece of shit, works. The memory card was in legit, pain-in-the-ass packaging and took about five minutes and two pairs of scissors to open. It's a lot faster when moving things to the card than the Kingston unit I used to have (forget the model number). No noticeable difference when launching an app from onboard memory or the SD card.
Hope that helps.
Your Aux cord, the one you use to plug into the hearing aid... does it have 3 rings on the plug or 2? The earbuds/mic have the 3 rings on the plug, 2 for stereo and 1 for mic.
Perhaps all you need is an aux cord with a mic on it, so that it has a 3 ring plug. This way you'll have your hearing aid for output and the cord itself will have the mic. This may be the solution. These cords do exist. For example heres one on amazon.
There are others as well. I googled "aux cord with mic" and several items are out there. Some have coiled wire like this one. I'm not sure that is ideal but there are several options and design choices.
If your aux cord is 2 ringed, standard headphone jack, i would consider trying a 3 ringed aux cord with a built in mic. This may solve the issue.
You could get a referb at that price from amazon, no ads - Motorola Moto G (4th.Gen) XT1625 16GB Black - Unlocked (Certified Refurbished)
